Quoted from leomatthewadams:
So, I’m new to this whole “restoring old pinball machines” thing and I’m trying to sort out what I may want to get. I used to play some of the old superhero ones (Spiderman comes to mind) and some of the old video game ones (I know I played one with Sonic). How can I get started with it? Do you have any suggestions on how to research and check things out?
To start with:
What do you mean by "restoring old pinball machines?
Are you talking about Electro Mechanical (Machines with reel scoring). Old Chicago
Early Solid State machines (Machines with a digital numeric display). Paragon, Meteor, Seawitch
Alpha Numeric Machines. Whirlwind, Earthshaker
DMD Games. Addams Family, Medieval Madness
Modern games. Anything with a full color LCD screen
Do you want to play pinball, fix old machines, or both?
